SARAH ANNE JOHNSON’S
“WONDERLUST” AT JULIE
SAUL GALLERY
At the Julie Saul Gallery in Chelsea last Thursday, October 24th, I discovered Wonderlust. Sarah Anne
Johnson’s fifth gallery exhibition portrays couples during intimate sexual moments in their personal living
spaces.
The project deals with ideas of physicality, psychology, and emotion involved in sexuality and the act of sex
between couples and individuals. The title, Wonderlust, fits the collection of photographs perfectly. The
images show raw action.
Viewing some of the works I almost felt I should look away, feeling as though I was invading someone’s
private moment of sexual connection, realization, or simply that I walked into the wrong room. Johnson
brings to life a very physically manicured essence of wonder by incorporating scraping and gouging, and
carefully spreading golden glitter and manipulating body parts to reveal greater meaning. The works are
extensions of standard photographic methods, the prints acting like a canvas to build on and create a better
sense of ecstasy and sensation.
Johnson’s take on sexuality in Wonderlust is evolved, mature, and interesting. This combination of intelligence
and outstanding creativity makes for an exhibition that is rewarding to view if fully immersed into.
